Parenting is tough under any circumstances, but feeding, cleaning, teaching, doing office work, protecting and entertaining children while stuck at home in the midst of a pandemic takes it to a whole new level. Needless to say, a lot of parents are hitting their limits in the age of COVID-19.

 

Schools are closed, we are working from home, and we can?t have our children stay over at their grandparents' place. This situation means that parents are spending more time than ever before with their adorable munchkins and they are experiencing the struggles and joys of parenting 24*7. Now, they're getting into all kinds of trouble and driving their parent?s bananas!

 

Let?s have a much needed chuckle about how crazy life is these days, let?s laugh our way through it. These are some honest, hilarious yet true confessions which we all will resonate with.  

 

The Pj family: Never knew those pyjamas will be the most sought after fashion these days as parents are finding themselves in pjs 24 hours. Yes , we do change it: we change from day pyjamas to night pyjamas. So exciting! Isn?t it? 

 

Our kitchens are open: 24*7- Suddenly our children are hogging food as if they are into some contest trying to win a grand prize! And it?s not even the daily  food which they usually eat but gourmet dishes they just saw on some YouTube videos. Some of us are definitely turning into professional chefs after the lockdown is lifted. Can we reconsider a shift in career?

 

Is it Monday already? Few of us  accepted that we have not only lost track of  time but days too. Sometimes it?s our children who remind us that it?s a weekday, we are yet to finish the assignments.

 

Let?s skip dusting today: Our initial days of lockdown started with excitedly ?deep cleaning? our house, organising the cabinet and decluttering, but when the work from home pressure started piling up which has webinars, video calls, audio con calls, and our children don?t get enough attention,we started loosening the grip on household work. The top shelf of the cabinet was dusted 2 weeks ago! Agree or not!  

 

Did we already have lunch? - Lunch at 2 pm, a packet of chips at 2:15 pm, and at the stroke of 3 we are suddenly hungry! Back to pyjamas, some of them are not fitting us anymore.
